Zenbo is the real world’s answer to BB-8 from Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Robot wars! Russia unveil humanoid supersoldier called ‘Iron Man’. It even snaps photographs when it sees fit.
Zenbo was unveiled by Jonney Shih, chairman of Asus – the company behind the robot – on stage at Computex today, reports The Verge.
It’s been described as resembling an iMac G4 riding a Sony Rolly, but appears to work like Amazon’s Echo.
Asus says it’s particularly useful for older people.
A video demonstrating Zenbo’s capabilities features a section where it comes to the aid of a grandad who’s fallen over at home.
The little robot takes a picture of the man, which it sends to his granddaughter.
She’s then able to notify her parents, who help him back up.
